What to bring

Items you should bring with you at any time of year

Tuition material and books are provided at the school and you may borrow books (in English) free of charge from the school Library.

Laptop or Tablet Computer – the school has wireless throughout so you will be able to use your laptop.

Cellphone – we sell telephone cards at the school but you might want to bring your own phone with you.

Dictionary – although we have a wide range of English Dictionaries, you might want to bring your own language-English dictionary.

An umbrella is advisable as weather in England is quite unpredictable.

Walking shoes - although there is a good bus service, life in Torquay is less dependent on the car than life in a big metropolitan city. You may also want to join one of our walking tours and remember, Torquay is built on 7 hills.

Travel adaptor for electric plugs - remember we have different electric plugs from anywhere else in the world.
